Well, I finally feel like I can officially start the new year. I know... we are two weeks into the new year, but things have been rather hectic in the fast lane. I don't think I have slowed down since Thanksgiving! We went to Las Vegas and Mesquite to visit family, then came home and Rob went to Canada for work while I stayed and got Christmas together. In the midst of it all I was planning a baby shower for my daughter Pamela and (grandbaby #7). We made it through New Years with friends and then a visit from Emily our youngest and her hubby. Yesterday we decided it was time to take down the Christmas tree and put the house back together. (We kept it up for Emily so she could have a Christmas). Now we can try to get everything back to normal. I have to say, I am grateful for all that I have and all that God has given me. Trust me, I'm not complaining about being busy... for I wouldn't want the alternative!
